new word alert + in these tough economic times.

recessionista - a fashion forward individual - who always looks fabulous - despite the lack of funding - in these tough economic times. Many of these types can be found on the I'm-so-cool-it-hurts-and-I-cut-myself-because-I-like-the-hurting website : They make me want to throw-up on them, even though I know some of them. (sorry Rosa - you are still the real McCoy of cool though.) It's become perfectly acceptable to pillage your grandmothers wardrobe - even if she's still alive - these tough economic times. And wear your inner-wear as outer-wear - in these tough economic times.

Have you noticed how everywhere you go you are reminded of these tough economic times? I can't even buy milk from Pick 'n Pay without it being shouted at me from some shelf wobbler. "We're in this together!" Well, No. We aren't Raymond Ackerman. I'm sure you haven't down graded to single ply and Ricoffee. Besides I have my pride, even if I eat like a trailer park whitie at the end of the month, i don't need the cashier sniffing at my 4 dozen eggs and fish fingers

- in these tough economic times.
